In the event of a security breach, the cost to your organization can be tremendous in terms of both reputation and money.
Traditional security access controls have fallen short, and a newer method, Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA), seeks to lock down access by moving defenses away from a perimeter focus with “some” trusted access, to an assumed breach, “trust no one, verify everyone” mindset, and presents a strategy to fill in the gaps exploited by malicious insiders and credential-based attacks.
This paper attempts to resolve the confusion surrounding Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA), and presents a strategy to fill in the gaps exploited by malicious insiders and credential-based attacks:
- What ZTA is and is not
- Key concepts of ZTA
- Optimal strategies
- Difference in vendor approaches
- Importance of superior analytics to identify baseline behavior
